“I feel my greatest asset is my relationship with my patients. I truly make an effort to treat each person like family,” says Dr. Ankar. When he is not at his dental practice, Dr. Ankar spends time at the Orange Grove Rehabilitation Center providing care to mentally and physically challenged patients.

Tom founded SFDG in 2002 with a vision for excellence in care practiced by a group of doctors in the same practice. “I enjoy the variety of personalities working together in our practice,” says Dr. Tom Gardenhire. “It’s exciting to see different temperaments, talents and convictions working toward a common goal of caring for people.

  • My family and I would highly recommend SFDG. Dr. Ankar and his team always treat us well and we value his knowledge as a dentist. They try their best to make what is often a unpleasant experience less uncomfortable and pleasant. Dr Ankar is not only my dentist, he's my friend.

  • A few weeks ago I woke up with a terrible toothache. Shallowford Family Dental was the only Chattanooga dentist office I called that told me I could come in as soon as I could. This was my first cavity ever so I freaked out a little, but the team was super nice and Dr. Edwards and Mary Taylor did a fantastic job making me feel comfortable. Also due to their skill I was able to avoid getting a root canal!
